[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the most beautiful places in Neringa is Nagliai Nature Reserve. This eerie landscape, whose dunes at once enchant yet bear witness to the memories of towns long gone, has an air of wistful remembrance that beguiles the visitor. It is situated between Juodkrantė and Pervalka. The grey or “dead” dunes as they are known cover the land, and your footsteps will bring you across the restless sand that has buried fishing settlements through the centuries. There is a walking path, which leads through a landscape of incredible views where the relentless winds of the coast have formed dips and potholes in the dunes. Here, in the solitude of the dunes, surrounded by the silent sands, is an opportunity to be at one with nature. In the evening, when the sun sinks, the colours of the dunes change spectacularly. Take care though as tourists are allowed to walk only on the tourist path; access must be controlled or the fragile dunes would be destroyed by the heavy tread of man.
